Classroom Observation

Classroom Observation

A CTAL staff member or departmental peer can observe and possibly videotape a class session for the purpose of developing teaching practice through reflection and feedback.
Tips for a successful observation:

  • Think about what the goals of your class are and what aspects of your teaching you are interested in receiving feedback on.
  • Take notes throughout the observation process. Consider including them as part of a teaching portfolio.
  • Consider participating in multiple observations over a period of time to revisit your teaching performance and to document your development as an instructor.
  • Plan to collaborate with a colleague by agreeing to observe each other’s classes.
